The Life of the Mentawai Tribe The Mentawai are the native people of the Mentawai Islands in West Sumatra province, Indonesia. They live a semi-nomadic hunter-gatherer lifestyle in the coastal and rainforest environments of the islands. I always try to get off the beaten track when I am traveling so when I was in Indonesia I chose to go visit the Mentawai Islands off the Sumatra coast. As usual, I was not disappointed. A 10 hour night crossing by boat will get you to Siberut which is the largest island of the 4 groups of Mentawai Islands. As I didn’t have any time commitments, I dec ..read more

Interacting with the local people and spending time with them is the best part of traveling, for me. I also learn a lot more about their culture, religion and general way of life than I otherwise would ..read more

The Epic Trans-Mongolian Railway   One of the longest railway networks in The World. Tour the Gobi Desert, Mongolian steppe and endless Siberian landscape on this epic train ride.   For some reason I have always loved traveling by train.

I can remember traveling through France in the sleeping wagon and being content just laying with my eyes closed, listening to the sound of wheel on rail. That is when I be ..read more
